About the Author

Brett Jordan Maletic, BSW, B.Msc., MSW, RSW, is a registered social worker, author, and therapeutic coach. He writes about themes of spirituality, personal wellness and social responsibility, and his therapeutic work is driven by a passionate view of an emerging global society that is becoming increasingly aware of its unrealized potential for peace. As such, he focuses on the elements of life that restore and recalibrate our sense of humanity, while emphasizing the greatest version of “you” within the framework of a restored earth. Coming from a 20-year background in healthcare, Brett has worked closely with families and individuals within highly vulnerable contexts; ranging from the birth experience all the way to the final moments of life. Through these incredibly diverse settings, Brett has sought ways to establish meaning and strategies for growth that transcend many of our typical, clinical, and Western ways of treating the human being. In essence, Brett practices a type of ‘helping profession’ which focuses on the health of the individual as a fundamental part of the bigger picture of our shared universe.
